Research Thrust: Understanding Epigenetic contributions to behavioral outcomes.

Basic research: How does the environment influence changes in brain function that lead to physiological and functional issues in the body (i.e., can we define the mind-body connection).

Applied research: How do alternative therapies such as yoga and breath exercises reverse or attenuate such changes. Social cultural behavioral modeling of stereotypes.

How: EEG and NIRS, psychophysiological measures, and virtual reality.
